For what (practice) writing Post- & Greeting Card Messages is concerned,

Without actually having to buy our Cards from our webstore(s), you can also Share them as - Social Share Cards - you can easily share on Social Media !

It's a perfect WIN/WIN-situation because even when you are not going to buy them,
and only share them through Social Media,

It gets our designs out there and they get noticed that way,
We see that there already also are plenty of you that get
so familiarized with our cards that you also like
to buy (several of) them anyway ;)

Here's the author bio I sent in my so far fruitless search for an agent. If you'd like more, let me know.

Author Bio: David Fass
The Noodle Pudding Gang

David Fass has been a Liberal Reform pulpit rabbi his entire career. Growing up in an Eastern European family that always operated at full volume turned out to be a useful professional tool. The Jewish education that qualifies him to write about Jewish subjects began many centuries before he was born.
The Noodle Pudding Gang, a novel, begins the saga of Anshel Fleischman and his family. His experiences bend, puncture, and deflate some of the stereotypes we have of the lives of Jews living in Eastern Europe in the middle of the nineteenth century.
His first fiction book, an illustrated volume for children, The Shofar that Lost its Voice, was published in 1982. As a rabbi he wrote constantly: sermons, book reviews, academic journal articles, many of which were published. He taught sermon writing and delivery both to fellow rabbis and to rabbinic students who insisted on skipping their lunch hour in order to extend his class. He is also well known for his expertise as a storyteller, the use of humor in sermons and elsewhere, and his deep knowledge of Judaism.
He served his final congregation in New City, New York for thirty-four years until he retired. Rabbi Fass drove a sports car for much of that time because he felt he could better serve his congregants by being a faster pastor. When he’s not writing he can be found slaving over a hot stove, assailing his circulatory system on the treadmill, or sitting in front of the television emulating an Idaho spud. He used to play golf, but had to stop when his skills never progressed past the stage of ground aeration.

The Gallery / Patriot's Heart -poem

Patriot's Heart

We will bury you from within and never
lay hand on you
was the Nazi threat to the American people
living under the Red, White and blue.

Socialist/communist have proven to be
the greatest threat to life and liberty
Long have Americans who love living free
fought the communist to save liberty.

The weeds of communism thrive on plucking
away at the legal safeguards put in place
to protect free press, free speech,
and religious liberty.

Where are the safeguards now!?

The safe guards rests safely inside the
patriot's heart...

The threat to bury the American people
from within can only happen when Americans
stop rearing patriot women and men.

God Bless America and all who struggle
against the deranged part of humanity
in the name of life and liberty.

Review My Poetry / Re: We Were Falling Apart
« Last post by ssilvs on July 22, 2020, 11:51:29 PM »
i think you're letting your idea overpower your abilities as a writer. it's easy, especially with concepts like this, to lose track of the emotion behind the words in favor of the words themselves. go back over the poem & think more about what you're feeling and what you want the reader to feel–leave grandiose vocabulary behind for a second & i think you'll find that everything flows a little more smoothly :)

Review My Poetry / hello! have a poem i wrote 5 minutes ago :)
« Last post by ssilvs on July 22, 2020, 11:45:02 PM »
i’m thinking of setting my hands
apart from my body, absconding with the
evidence from the scene of the crime and
burning it all down behind me. i’m
thinking of my hands, of the hollows they leave,
and the silly motions i repeat to soothe
them. my hands fold
in on themselves and press crescents,
bloody, into my palms, coffee ringed
papers abandoned and eaten. i’m
thinking my hands have taken matters unto
themselves, that the
separation occurred before i even knew
what the word
meant. i’m thinking my hands
are not my hands, if they are
hands at all, and the
moon—crescent-shaped and holy—throws back its
head. i am looking down at the place where
my hands should
be and seeing
nothing. i am looking at a hollow and thinking
                                                            how can it be filled?
i am looking at a hollow and thinking it cannot be
filled. my hands rise behind me and dig
a shallow pit. hands rise behind me and tug
on my hair, braiding it neat and pretty and
clean, hands rise and hands rise and

          a sudden calamity. the caves revolt and turn inwards.
my hands and i walk
outwards and see, from the stalactites, something
glistening. something
slick and pink, soft with
some form of innocence i am not sure i
want to
know. i am looking at this
thing, this perversely unassuming, dripping thing and i am looking
at my hands. my hands, stained, and the hollow inside me is
hollower
still.

Review My Poetry / Re: A Silly Old Soul Like Mine

well, you’re definitely right about this sounding more like song lyrics than the lines of a poem (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) i admire your courage in trying to throw away the traditional rhyme scheme you’re used to, but you seem to have fallen into the common trap while doing so—you’ve created a poem with a number of rhyme schemes in it and it, admittedly, does sound a little choppy. either clean up the scheme so it’s coherent or cut it out entirely and then you’ll have one pretty solid poem  :)

Review My Poetry / Re: hello! have an unedited poem that i can’t recall writing
« Last post by ssilvs on July 22, 2020, 11:25:00 PM »
I really like the way the spacing if the lines changes the rhythm of the poem in a non traditional way.

thank you, i think
